Imagine if ISIS really tried to spread this disease in the US, in multiple cities across our southern border....
Is that truly the most efficient means of furthering their agenda?
Since the patient in TX was diagnosed with Ebola, the extent of ignorance displayed by the average American has become deplorable at best.
It seems education, logic, and reason are set aside to give way to irrational fear, rumors, and assumptions. For those that think the release of ebola into the US is the conspiracy theory, I would say people’s reaction to release is the conspiracy theory. You have been manipulated into a fear response to which I have heard so many ridiculous solutions. Did you know that “boots on the ground” have been ordered to Dallas, TX? Is this not more frightening?

The air travel thing is a really simple fix. Require any aircraft transporting an Ebola patient to be burned to the ground. I bet the airlines would become very discriminating indeed.
As far as how dangerous Ebola is ... all you have to do is touch a victim who is presenting symptoms. That guy with fever ... that's right ... just the fever part.
What are your chances of surviving if you do contract it? My .357 magnum has just 5 cylinders. Fill up three and give'r a spin. Would you put it to your head and pull the trigger?
Now ... NOW ... is not the time to be downplaying the seriousness this Pandemic must be treated with to keep it from spreading to every population on Earth. It got out of the wild and into the U.S. You CANNOT trust the infected.
The parents in Texas pulling their kids out of school Right Now have expressed the Most Rational response to date.
The guy running the CDC needs to be relieved for sheer, utter, complete, and total incompetence. He failed. One infected clown exposed up to 80 people to the same chance of death the cylinder spin offers ... and you find this acceptable?!?
The economy ain't the very best at the moment anyway. Think about it.
